Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* The Wicked History series does a great job of introducing kids to some notorious names. The compact hardcovers don't sensationalize, but they make the point that their subjects are very ruthless people indeed. Attila the Hun has the word barbaric in spray-painted style across the cover, and this is more than an appellation. He was the symbol of the rise of barbarianism that brought down the Roman Empire. In fascinating detail, the book not only introduces Attila, but gives the backstory on what made the rise of the Huns possible. The exciting yet concise writing brings readers close to the battlefield, but the fighting and intrigue are neatly set against the sweep of history. One of the best things about this series is the care that has been taken with the design and format. From the eye-catching covers to the solid maps and historical engravings and illustrations (all made to look of a piece, even though they may be from different sources), the books have pick-me-up appeal. Even kids who don't think they like history may change their minds when confronted with these.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2009 Booklist"
